Southeast carjack leads to pursuit and arrest
Late in the evening of Friday, April 13, at 11:14 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to a reported carjacking in the 700 block of S.E. 130th Avenue.
They learned that a man had approached the victim as she was seated in the driver seat of her maroon Nissan Pathfinder in a driveway. As the victim was seated in her vehicle, the suspect approached and implied he had a weapon, and demanded the car.
The victim got out, and the suspect climbed in and drove away.
Officers provided the description of the stolen Pathfinder to officers throughout the city, and a short time later, at 11:42 p.m., a North Precinct officer spotted the stolen car being driven near N.E. 148th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard.
Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspect continued driving west on Sandy Boulevard. Officers pursued, and near the intersection of N.E. 102nd Avenue and Sandy they used a pursuit intervention technique (PIT) and a box-in maneuver to stop the suspect.
Despite the box-in, the driver continued to try to drive away, but officers were able to stop him from fleeing in the vehicle, and took him into custody. The Portland Police Bureau Detective Division's Robbery Detail responded to assume the investigation.
The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Carl E. Hollingquest. Hollingquest was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Robbery in the First Degree, Robbery in the Second Degree, Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Methamphetamine, and a probation violation for a previous conviction of Possession of Dangerous Drugs.
